Genetically modified fish: An overview
Author(s): Mrinalini Saran and Sunita
Abstract: Genetically modified fish are organism whose genetic material (DNA) has been altered using genetic engineering technique. The aim is to introduce a new trait to the fish which does not occur naturally in the species i.e. transgenes is. These are used in scientific research and are being developed as environmental pollutant sentinels and for use in aquaculture production. Now a days also use for commercial production, sales and consumption (1). This report provide an overview of the potential ecological and genetic effect of using genetically engineered fish in aquaculture. It reviews the recent development in gene transfer in fish and consider how genetic engineering could be used in future aquaculture.
